St. Louis– September 28, 2010 – ClearPractice, a provider of innovative software solutions for physicians and medical groups, today announced the general market release of Nimble, the company’s comprehensive electronic medical record application designed and developed specifically for the iPad.
Adoption of electronic medical record (EMR) software has historically been slow as many systems often impede physician workflow, costing them both time and money. ClearPractice focused on eliminating this barrier by leveraging the iPad and the native iPad environment to create an application that enhances the care delivery process whether in the exam room, hospital room, or family room.
“There are 560,000 office-based physicians in the U.S. 70 percent are in small practices and most still use paper-based records,” said John Doerr, venture capitalist and board member. “The iPad will transform health care IT, and Nimble is the game changer: it gives doctors real-time information to better serve vital patient needs.”
Nimble is the first comprehensive EMR solution developed in iOS to run natively on the iPad. The product connects either through WiFi or 3G to the ClearPractice cloud so no data is stored on the device, making it secure and HIPAA compliant. The application contains all the features of the company’s existing SaaS-based EMR solution including scheduling, charting, prescribing, inpatient rounds, lab review/ordering, messaging and more. The product also seamlessly integrates with the company’s practice management and billing system so all charges are automatically captured, scrubbed, and electronically submitted for payment.
“We didn’t just replicate our existing EMR system on the iPad, we took the opportunity to rethink the EMR experience and do all the things we could never do via other devices or platforms,” said Joel Andersen, President of ClearPractice. “The assistance we received from the team at Apple was invaluable and helped us optimize the user experience.”
As part of the product release, the company is providing an iPad and a copy of Nimble free of charge to the first 500 physicians that subscribe to the Practice Edition of ClearPractice, the company’s integrated SaaS-based EMR and practice management solution.
